Step 1

Taking the chain from your Challenge Pack, use your pliers to cut the chain in the middle point and attach a jumpring to either end.

To create the 9 groups of beads, thread two seed beads, one rondelle and rwo more seed beads onto an eyepin. Trim the end and use your pliers to round the end into a loop.

Connect all 9 of these bead groups together using a jumpring and attach each end to the chain.

Step 2

To make the middle point, find the 5th bead group which should sit in the middle of your necklace.

Thread 7 seed beads onto an eyepin and loop the end as before. Repeat to make a second.

Attach each eyepin to either side of the 5th bead on your necklace and connect the ends of the two eyepins together with a jumpring.

Using a headpin this time, thread on two seed beads and a rondelle bead, loop the end and attch it to the bottom of the necklace.
